Does my saltwater pool require chlorine?

Don't tell anyone, but it already has chlorine in it. Wait, what???

The nature of a saltwater system is that it actually converts ordinary salt into chlorine.

Saltwater pools are a great option for those who are sensitive to chlorine. Chlorine generated pools, or “saltwater pools” have softer water and can be gentler on eyes, skin and hair but yes, they produce they're own chlorine.

That being said, there may be an occasion that you might need to super chlorinate the pool or “shock” the water. You can read more about how to shock your pool using the link below!
